You guys are ballbreakes! hahaahahaha

Sorry to hear about Gramps. Maybe get him into playing Overwatch or something so you can use his HDTV.

OP, why did you buy an XB1S? Curious what in the world pushed you to make that decision if you don't have an HDTV. You must not have been enjoying HD television for the last decade?

Just take the plunge and go get a budget friendly HDTV, there are TONS of them out there now. There are even some budget 4K TV's out there lol.

I just bought a nice once. I don't watch television outside of football. It's just a pain in the butt. Everyone tells you to get an xbox one, no one tells you that you need an hdtv. I thought one person would have said something. Never even crossed my mind.

It would be like if you got a Blu-ray and complained that it didn't play in your VCR

It's assumed you already have one. I mean, you can't buy a new standard definition set anymore, right?

C'mon man, you really thought it would play on an old CRT or something? That it would come with red/yellow/white plugs and you'd have to switch to channel 3 to play it? The replies to this thread can't even be classified as ball-busting, only as legitimate disbelief.

The real question is why don't you have an hd tv? You should be able to find a cheap one.

I'm surprised a "Gaming is garbage" thread hasn't popped up.

It is! I was pretty upset and drunk when I started it but I'm dying right now. The J. Jonah Jameson one had my laughing my ass off. Seeing people get upset always makes me laugh (I worked in a grocey store for a while) and seeing myself get upset it just priceless.

Listen xbox one s, I don't need you to update the operating system and the controller to watch a 4k movie. The other day I wanted to play Dragon Heroes 2 for 45 minutes as well and that needed an update. I had the Xbox One S and the PS4 updating at the same time so I played 8 bit xmas 2014 and swords and runes for a bit. My video game systems require more maintenance than my car.

I bought my first one 15 years ago, and that was after having an "edtv" which people seem to forget was a thing.  We're at 5 now, the game room, exercise room, living room, bed room, and umm... upstairs bathroom (Don't judge!)  When 40-42" TVs are sub-$200 and a modern system is... not... hard to blame the tv.

Couse OP is just making a piss-poor joke.
